I found this in my drafts.
We live in Montgomery, AL
That statement really reads
We live in no snow... like ever.
We got a small little dusting. SMALL 
But who cares (I do) the girls loved it anyway.

We were expected to get a lot more. Eye roll.... It hit more north.
My brother slept in his office for multiple nights.
They were not expecting it.
But I was, but it never came.

My little snowman
With a smile like that, I just can't care

The Family snowman
Happy Snow to us!

Things where they don't go

A little think thing called life

Life happens so quick.
Some days, the days are incredibly long and tedious.
But every day there is something special and wonderful that happens.
Since not everything on my weekly chore list gets done every week (like blogging)
Here is a little preview of our crazy wonderful world February to March. 

 I do know that this picture and following of Sarah was on Valentines Day. 
 They had heart donuts. I like that they fell in love.
 Sarah is still in crazy love with these shoes.... Really any pair of shoes.
Yesterday, I was getting ready for church and already had on my shoes.
She brought me another pair (that I guess she thought would go better)
Then tugged and told me to take off my shoes to wear the ones she just brought.
Today she has already worn 2 pair of my shoes and her sisters and cried that she wanted her shoes on. Not just any shoe would do though, it had to be her crocs.

 Hannah made herself a mustache.
Yep, that's her hair that she stuffed up her nose to create one awesome stache.

 One Hannah's favorite things to do to help out is to put the trash liner in the trash can.
Then this gross thing happened. Gross!

Baking care of business

This is my little helper in the kitchen. She's a great help. She puts butter into the batter, makes sure the sugar isn't poisonous, puts the eggshells in..... Wait I mean eggs in, and makes sure mommy doesn't eat all the batter.
She is the resident cook in this house

Granddaddy takes a break

There is a luxury of living in the same city as your granddaddy. It is even a bigger luxury when he works in the same building. It even gets better when he is just across the hall from Daddy. I am not sure if this applies to every granddaddy in the world. But it is for sure true about Hannah and Sarah's granddaddy. You see, Cookies are always a staple at Granddaddies office. If cookies aren't there, yummy crackers are. If those aren't there, there will be an emergency trip to Sam's that afternoon and granddad is just limping through on trail mix. If there is no food there, the world has ended. Granddad is way more than just cookies. 
He is a grandfather that loves his granddaughters and takes the time to show it.

Hobbit feet

Say what?

Stephen was out at church
For something, I don't remember what.
He came in kinda flustered kinda in shock kinda I don't have a word for it.
Then he started telling me about his ride home.
It went something like this:
He was driving home when suddenly a humongous pine tree fell into the road. Like a 100 feet in front of him.
No one was cutting it.
There was no wind. 
It wasn't raining
There wasn't anyone outside or anything.
The tree just fell.
Of course when he told me, I was thinking it couldn't have been that big.
So, we all jumped in the car to check it out.
This is across two full lanes and most of a third.
We are so thankful Daddy wasn't hurt!
